Cherish Hard (Hard Play #1) by Nalini Singh 


New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh kicks off her new Hard Play contemporary romance series with a sizzling story that’ll leave you smiling…

Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin.

Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener.

And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.


4 out of 5 stars

This was so fun and charming. It had a light vibe that I found totally entertaining with really likable and wonderful characters. I had a blast reading this!

Ísa and Sailor were great together and I loved that playfulness and flirting between the two. They had this great teasing chemistry that was infectious. I loved learning their histories and thought there was really great character development. Sailor was so sweet. I loved his determination and perseverance in life and in pursuing Ísa. There were so many sweet, wonderful moments and he was rather swoon worthy. Ísa was a great character, so strong and she put up with so much, and she was incredibly caring. They both had their hang ups to work through and I enjoyed the ins and outs of that as they came together.

Honestly this was just a super entertaining read and I enjoyed getting to know these genuine characters. The more I learned, the more I liked. It's pretty low drama, more of an emotional journey. I really enjoyed their families and friends, they were all solid, real characters and I thought there was great attention to detail concerning them. I also really enjoyed a secondary story happening with Ísa's best friend, that was super fun. I also loved the setting and the picture the author painted about the location of the story.

I enjoyed the writing. I feel like Nalini Singh has a unique voice that I find refreshing. There are good details but it's not bogged down with every little thing. I enjoyed the timeline and the build of Ísa and Sailor’s overall relationship. I thought it was laid out well and had a decent pace.

Just an all around awesome read. Sweet and flirty that had me smiling and ready for more in the series!
